Weir explains his short shorts here.

.....but Bobby's silliest moment might just be the Best Music Video Ever!

I never saw that before - priceless!
I think I might be closer to understanding the lyrics now.

Those lyrics are awesome high rock'n'roll comedy! I always loved this song, though they did not always nail it live (imhoo!). Aside from Estimated Prophet, which is quite a bit more subtle, who knew that Barlow could be this hilarious?

Well I was drinkin' last night with a biker
And I showed him a picture of you
I said, "Pal get to know her, you'll like her"
Seemed like the least I could do.
Cause when he's chargin' his chopper
Up and down your carpeted halls
You will think me by contrast quite proper
Never mind how I stumble and fall.

You imagine me sipping champagne from your boot
For a taste of your elegant pride
I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe
But at least I'm enjoying the ride.

Cause you're a sweet little softcore pretender
Somehow, babe, it got as hot as it gets
With her black leather chromespark suspenders
And her chair and her whip and her pets.

Well I know you're the reincarnation
of the ravenous Catherine the Great,
and I know how you love your ovations,
and the z-rated scenes you create.

You imagine me sipping champagne from your boot
For a taste of your elegant pride
I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe
But at least I'm enjoying the ride.

You analyze me, tend to despise me
You laugh when I stumble and fall
There may come a say when I'll dance on your grave
If unable to dance I'll still crawl across it
Unable to dance I'll still crawl
Unable to dance I'll still crawl
Unable to dance I'll crawl.

You must really consider the circus
It just might be your kind of zoo
I can't think of a place that's more perfect
For a person as perfect as you.

And it's not like I'm leaving you lonely
Cause I wouldn't know where to begin
Well I know you wake up here only
When the snakes come marching in.

You imagine me sipping champagne from your boot
For taste of your elegant pride
I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe
But at least I'm enjoying the ride,
at least I'll enjoy the ride.
Ride, ride, ride
Ride, ride, ride
Ride, ride, ride
At least I'll enjoy the ride.
At least I'll enjoy the ride.


Not sure about the site I lifted these lyrics from. I made a couple of corrections that I was sure of, but I don't claim these are exactly correct ... close enough probably.
